Headlines to include


Tell our legislators: ‘Step up state funding for The People’s University!’

While the State Assembly added $101 million more in funding for the CSU in its 2016-17 State Budget plan, the State Senate did not. Five conferees each from the Assembly and Senate are meeting now, trying to hammer out a common plan on a range of topics including funding for the CSU.

CFA is calling on supporters of the CSU to contact our own elected leaders and ask them to apply pressure on the conferees to approve the extra funding.
